FLW's German Warehouse (update)

A comment just left on a old post here updated the status of Frank Lloyd Wright's German Warehouse.

The heir of the deceased owner of the warehouse has offered the building for sale to the City of Richland Center at a modest price. The community is in the process of organizing an effort to purchase and restore the building. It is structurally sound but will need restoration work to the decorative concrete friezes, tuck pointing of the brickwork and, yes, a new roofing system. Anyone interested in the effort can follow the project on FaceBook: or contact the Richland Chamber and Development Alliance in Richland Center:, (608) 647-6205


  1. After our daughter's wedding in the Twin Cities a couple of friends from KC drove down to Spring Green. They are big Wright fans and wanted to see Taliesin. We drove through Richland Center and I would have stopped but we were tight on our scheduled tour. It is a great tour and our guide was knowledgeable and funny/irreverent.

  2. That's a gorgegous strech of highway between the Twin Cities and RC, Nick.
